Six level hold. About pits, snakes, and wraithwings.

Edit: Please do not play this hold. It is a bit boring and was one of my first holds. The only reason you might be reading this is if you played my other holds and thought they were good.

Like your other hold, mazes can get boring.

And I thought some of the rooms were getting just a bit repetitive.

But overall, I thought this one was good. It was definitely better than The Snow Land.

Nice job. :)

Not too bad, Vip. But the wraithwing killing can get a bit aggravating!

I gave this a 6 and 3.5 brains.

Good job! Good hold, really. I like wraithwing and snakes, and too with pit! I give 8 funny and 5 brains.

Congratulations! :thumbsup

Just finished this hold and wanted to say thanks. I enjoyed it and my wraithwing smiting skill is much improved. The maze on Level 6 wasn't too bad, and though some rooms had trivial solutions, many had interesting ones. Overall, I give it a 7, with 3 brains.

Oh I wanted to ask: there don't seem to be any secret rooms, yet tokyokid has 58 rooms conquered for this hold, but the rest of us only have 56 rooms. Why is that?

He's back to 56; I've noted that occasionally with my own scores, I'll be credited twice for the same score. It fixes itself eventually.

Not a very difficult hold but actually fun (and easy)for optimizing.

I like optimizing rooms that have multiple entrances, or having to go around to get to the other side so you can even finish the room.

With that being said, too many of the rooms were easy 1st place ties. Some required some genuine effort but there were a good many that if you just used the right entrance and killed some wraithwings before the last serpent died, you'd tie for first place.

There were several rooms that it was too easy to leave before defeating it, and if you left by the wrong entrance then you'd have to restore to the previous room. This was annoying but probably my own fault. All in all, a decent beginner hold for the theme chosen (narrow paths over pits). 6/10 for fun, 3/10 for brains.

First of all I have to say I am a little surprised it has that low rating because I have found it to be a really enjoyable distraction. Ultimately there weren't any difficult or challenging puzzles, almost everything depended on execution, but I especially liked the last level which fortunately had not overstayed its welcome.Although holds like this one show how handy an option to click with your mouse to pathfind there would be.
